helps, has fun
The Fort Gibson Women’s Club is a women’s civic organization that serves Fort Gibson and surrounding areas, according to a media release.
The club helps provide the needs of schools and students, elderly in custodial care, sons and daughters in the military, and persons who are in need of food or emergency relief.
The club provides food and gift baskets to people during the holiday season. The club’s goal is service to the community, but also has fun and fellowship.
The club meets the second Thursday of every month. Formal meetings are held January through May, and September through December. In June, July and August, the club meets for lunch in various area restaurants for fun and fellowship.
